"Ah, then, Tim," said I, when I was perfectly acquainted with himself and his musical merits, "what a pity that with your fine taste and superior set of pipes you, did not try lo conquer the hftH dp.zen, nt least.'" "Ogh, musha !" quoth Tim, looking sul ky and annoyed, ''thai same rjujsthen haq been put tq me by dojeng, an' I hate to heqf it !

As in duty bound, J admi(led that hiq ar gument was unanswerable, n4 thencefor ward we were the best Irjends possible. Grateful for my patience and forbearance, I he eternally mangles the three unfortunates lop my gratification ; and I doubt it 1 could now relish Ifoem with their (air proportions, so apctomeil as I have been to Tiiii's 'short nteasure !" lAfter all, Tim Callaghan was a politic fellow; and thesa three touts were ex; pressly chosen and learnt to win the ears and suflrages of all denominations of Chris tian men. Thus, the "Hoy ne watei'i is the propitiatory sacrifice at te rotpstant's tloor, "Patrick's Day'' qt that of the Roman Catholic, and when he js nqt sure of the creed of the party he wishes to conciliate, to suit Quakers, Mehodi;t seekers, and Jumptrs, '"(Jod save the Queen" is the third;.

When Tim arrives at a gentleman's door, I hi usual plat) is to commence with the tuitnble stretiade, and drone away at that till the lew pence he is piping for sends him fiU'.1V rnnfpnf. Hitl if hn !a A.ti Jinod l(?,ng, 8ml he sees no great chance of re ward or entertainment within doors, he he roines furious, and in his ire rattles up (hat one of the three which he supposes most disagreeable and opposite to the politics of the offender.

If be is asked lor any lavorile or fashionable air and yon might Well a:-k Tim Callaghan !o repeat a pas sage of Homer in the original Greek his civilest reply is, "I haven't thai, bit Vil give ycz one as good,"- when one of the trio lol lows of course ; and il the imperti nent suitor for novelties in his ignorance persists in demanding more than is. to be had, lie is angrily cut sho.it, especially ifj of interior rank, with "How bad yeare for sort'tns! yer manlier; wud be conlint wid what.! gave ye, an thankful into the bar gain!" Thus qualified to please, it is no lo be wondered at that he is cvl,ebrated through three baronies as V. Ike piper!" When first I had the pleasure to see and hear T:m Callaghan, it was in the middle of winter, dark and dreary, and in a retired country place, where even the "vile, screeching of the wry-necked fife" would ha,ve been welcome in lieu ol b. tier. Con ceive our ecstacy, Iben, when the inspilrng drone of the bag pipe startled our cars into attention and expectation! The very serr yants were clamorous in expressing (heir delight, and n beseeching hal the piper should be brought into the house and enter tained. The petition was granted, the minstrel was led in "nothing losts," and seated in the hall. Well, Tim's first essay at the minister's bouse was of course "Ibe Boyne," played very spiritedly and accu rately on the Yt'hcde, with the exception of a, few rather essential notes that he omitted as unnecessary 01 troublesome, or (as the servants supposed) in consequence of the cold ol bis fingers; and finally they took him to the kitchen, and sealed him oppo site to the blazing fire. "Now he'll plav in ait nest!" cried they, as oe and all galh; ere I around him in expectation cJ mv;ic; Our piper being r,o.y in (he lower re gions, among the inferior gentry, and wil ling to please all orders and conditions, be gins to consider whether he shall repeat "Ihe Boy ne," or commence the all-enlivening "Patrick's day." t'What rtJiginn i the sarvinls ov ?" re plied he at length lo a little cow-boy gap ing with wonder a,t thp grand finmr,er,ls of the pipes. 'They are ov all sjia,tts, fair," whispered Tommy in reply, and reddened all over al the great man's especial notice. "Ov all smarts !" mutters Tim significant ly ; Ihen deciding instantly, with. much solemnity of face and strength of arm he squeezed forth the conciliating "God save (he King." The butler listened awhile with Ihe sa pient air of a judge, "you're a capital per former, piper !" said be at l,erigth, patron izingly, and with a iwhd p.ii each .ip; "an' that's a fine piepe ov Iln$nilmfa coin; persjlipn! but jt js r,qt shutable for &M pc cqshjnq, an' a livelier air would agree with our temperament neither. Change it to somelhin' new." And tupking apron aside, he gallantly took the rosy tips of Ihe housemajd's f,ngers and led her out, while th.e garde.ier as politely handed forth the cook. The piper looked sullen, and still continued the national anthem as if he knew what he was ahotil, and was deter mined to day opt his tune. Thp butler's dignity bristled up. "Railly," be observed, and smiled super ciliously, "we ape very loyal people here about, but a this perticklcr moment we don't want tp join in a prayer for our !suv icj'jf welfare! stop that melancholic thing, man ! an' give us one of Jackson's jigs." "Out ov fashin," quoth Tim sullenly, libut I'll give yez one us good," and "Pat rick's Day" set them all in motion for a quarter of an hour. "Oh, we're quite tired ov that !!' at length lisped the hoticema'td ; 'do, piper, give us a wulse or vo-dftreeth. Do you play, 'Taul-;Jt.;'p',lty V Jne idehottom and I used to dance it beautifully when lived at Mr. A s!5! "Yliat does yez call it '!' qsked Tim ra ther sneeringlv.

"Phew !" returned the musician con ternptuously, "that's out ov fashin too ; buf fll give yez one as good and Hie Boyne" lollowed, played neither faster nor 8'ower than he had been taught it, which was in right tune, and anything but (lancing time, to the nq small annoyance of the dancers, Another and another jig and reel was denrquded, aTi'd tq all and each Tim Callaghan replied, "1 have'nt that, but I'll give yc? orre as, good ' and the "King," the "Loyne't and tho "lay,'i ollpyeU eacn other in Uie succession. Was there any thing more provoking I There stood four active, zealous vqlariej ol Terpsichore, with toes pojnted and hpads erect, anxiously awaiting a limner develop: ment of Tim Callaghan'j powers! There stood the dancers, looking beseechingly at the piper; there eat the piper staring at the dancers, wonder'ina yhat the deuce they waited for, quite satisfied that they bad got alHhat could reqsqnably be expect? ed from him. "A til have you nolhin' else in yer chant therV at last angrily demanded the butler. (E-ah V drawled Tim Callaghan, 9; if he did not undeistond the querist.

Arrah, do ye ever allind the nobility's concerts ;Ha ! ha ! ha !" "Pon my voracity" cried the smiling boUfSematd,' "I nm greatly afeered he will get piper's pay more kicks than half pence,' 1,1a S ti,a ha!v ' "Atirgood enough for him!'.' added the gardener; a felln that has bul three half tliunen in the world, an' none ov them right ! Arrah, what's yer name, avic V "What's that to you ?" growled Ihe pi per. "Oh, nolhin'!. c,nly I thought that you might be the piper that played before Mo ses.' Ha! ha! ha!" "Oh! the w iH may wag Since nit got the ran," Sang the cook, ns she returned, to her avocations. But the butler, as master of the ceremonies, showed his disappointment and displeasure in a summary ejection of the unfortunate minstrel Irom the comforts of the Cre and the house altogether. Again I had the, exquisite delight of hearing Tim Callaghan. r It was in another part of our County, and where he' was quite a stranger. A lady had assembled a number pf young persons to rj e sdp o)ance o,ne evening ; but, alas 1 ere t,he hour ol meeting arrived, she had beard thai the fiddler she esnected was ill, and could not possibly attend her. What w'as to be donel Nothing ! When the guests arrived, and the dire news communicated, ',he gentlemen in spite of themselves locked terrifically glum, as if they anticipated a dull evening; and the bright countenances cf the ladies were overcast, though as usual, sweet creatures! they tried to look delightful under all visi tations. In this dilemma, one of the beaux suddenly recoUecled that "he had si-en a piper coimng into the Village W evening; and he thought it was probable he woyld j stop for the night at one ol the public liou- j srs." Hope instantly illuminated all fa ces, and a messenger was forthwith dis patched for the man of music. For my part, whenever 1 heard a piper mentioned, knew who was full before me. What jjo,t of person is your piper V ask ed I of Hie gentleman t'ha,t ha,d produced the subject. "A tall, stout, rather drowsy-looking fel low," was the reply. '.Oh!" crjed I, "it is the Inimitable! it is Tim, Callqghan !" I was eagerly asked if he were a good performer ; and as could not Venture (o reply with any degree ol gravity, one oth er person present, who knew honest Tim othy and bis ways, with admirable compo sure answered, " That under the shield of Miss F.tlge worth's mighty name he 'would decline trumpeting the praises of any one, she having expressly declared in hef novej of 'Ennui,' that 'vhqever enters thus an: notincetj appears to disadvantage;1 and therefore "said my friend, "we leave Tim piilaghan's musical merit lo speak lor it f" Nntldnrr rfii'ld be better than this. and' the effect Tim produc .......... - - ri ced was cotres? ponding. While the messenger is a'vav (or our iper, I must relate an anecdote ol another servant, and a rustic one too, once sent on 1 I f t , L J ft I. a simtiar erfano. .(onu b mqef iroi (rieiius spending the evening with dim, and he de sired his servant to procure a musician for the youn;' lolks lor love or money, in about half tjn, f(our John returned after a Iruitless search; anil instead ot saying in usual style that "he could not find one," ie flung open the drawing-room door, ana announced his unsuccess in the following good his promise ol music almost as har impromptu, spoken with all due empha: moii jousts' (he jqund eljcjted from hjs bag sis and discretion : I scorched the city's clr.euin.fer-ep,eo rotintl, And not a musician U there to ic fomul I ! tear for musio you .11 he ut a Uhs, l'or thu fi.liller hits taken the ruadio Ross I" and then made his bow and retired The cilu, ty tlie way, was a village of some hall-dozen houses. So much for John, and now for Tim Callanham. Bresently' the identical Tjm made his 1 1 . '. ' . .. .Vi, .. appearance, anrt was placed in tugn state at the top qf tl;e yoom, wih a degree of attention and respect lully due tq Ins niiiit- ties. For my part, Ihe very sight of Tim, and the thought of his consummrte assur - rauce or stupidity in attempting tq play for dancing, amtised me beyond expression ; but I suppressed all symptoms of this, and kent my eve on the alert in expect'atjon of 'what w'as to fcdlow. A burr per of his avor te punch was prepared for him, and while sipping it, I thought he cast a scru tinizing and anxious glance Qi the cqmpa py.'probaidy thinking how he should qdr just his politics there, But he had little time lo pause. A quadrille set was imme diately formed, an 1 he wrs called on to play ! tjP sapient hele and beau never oreqining thai 9 mpdern piper ever vttgnt not nlav quadrilles.

A 1,1 stared, and most laughted heartily ; but what was of moie consequence to poor Tim, his arm was fiercely seized, and he was stopper shot in the midst of his loyally by an angry demand "if fye could play no quadrilles? Not -or V' and the nauie oj a dozen quadrilles and walt zes were mentioned, that the unfortunate minstrel had never heard of in all his days and travels. In his dire extremity he commenced "the Boyne," when at the in slan,t some person, ca.llod the lady of the house. The name Seemed a Catholic one a sudden cry of joy shot through his frame to his finger's ends, and from thense lo his pi.pes, and poor "atijicV.'s Day" yas the result.' A liinrl of jigging quadrille was then danced by the L'asl fastidious nnd better humored of the party ; the first top couple, superfine exquisites! the lady an importation from London, and odorous of "Bouque a-la-Reiiie," and the gentle man a perfect' "Pelham," from the aristo-, cratic arch ol his brow to his shoe tie, having retreated to their seats with, looks and jestuns of horror and disgust, q,u,i,Ce unnoticed by Jim Callagham, who bore himself with all the dignily of a house hold bard of the olden time, in his ele ment, playing his own favorite tune, and quolliftj actually dancing to his music ! It was a gifeat daj fcr house of Cal laghan ! ' Well ! as thery seemed noting belter to be had, "Patrick's Day," continued in re quisition, now a a quadrille, now as coun try dance, by all who preferred motion to sitting still, before and after supper, (ill at last every one w'as yeary of it and a gen eral row was made to dVop the "Day" and take "Coyt.e," and endeavor b move to it as best we could. By that time, loo, our p.tper seen.e.l most heartily tired of bis pa tro" sa.int a."11 having quaffed his fourth fulbflow ing gvtldct, appeared rather incli ned for a doze than to renew his melody. But he was roused up by our worthy host, who, good, gay old man ! yas the very soul of cheerfulness. "For pity's sake, piper,-' said, he, Iry and give us something that we can foot it lo ! I was not in li'ht mood for dancing to night till now,' If you be an Irishman, look at the pretty girl that N lo be my partner for the next dance, and perhaps her eyes may inspire even you, you drow sy fellow, with momentary animation, and perform a miracle on your pipes !" Short as this address was, and gaily as it was ultereiL, it had no q'jher eI'ect on our piper than administering an additional sporific. bile tbs ol I gentleman was speaking, Hie drowsy god wa:i descending faster and faster on Jim Callagham. e dozed nd was shaken i:p,.

Tim mechanically fumbled at his pipes while the gentlemen busied themselves in procuring nartners. There was silence for some seponds, 'B.egin, piper," called cut our host, "Out ov fashin," mattered Jim in bro- ken hall-hnished setitences : "Dut-t 11-give -yes-one-asood ;" and long, a jod j reverberating snore at the instant made pine ! !

In tho State of Tennessee, there is a cer tain village, boasting cf its tavern, three stores, nnd four groceries, where, from morning till ni-iht, and from night till dawn, a person entering the town may find in the difletent stores or groceries uforesaitl, one or more groups of persons playing cards. Gambling here is reduced to a science Ihe history of four kins thoroughly studied, from ihe miss in her leciiSj lo. Ihe mother of a large family, they ore initiated into I he mysleiies of high, low, jack, game ; right and left bower ; 1 he honors and the odd trick. One of tho best playeis in the village was Jlaior Smith, the tavern keeper ; or, as he expressed it the Proprietor of tho hotel ; a widower w ho li'a Jepthn, Judge in tunicl,, iul a daughter pacing lair.1.'. Fanny, 1 he daughter, was one of pretest girls in Tennessee, nnd therefore one of the prettiest in the vvoild ; for we here digrcsj in order to lay down as our ipse dixit, that Tennessee women, in point of beauly, nre matchless. The sweetheart of Miss Fanny was a young farmer, residing in tho neigh boihuod, whom wo shall designate by the name of liob,. It happened one day before haryest, lie young man was detained in the village, nnd found hm ns usual, at the hotel, seated be tween the Major and his charming dangh ler. After a desultory conversation belwei n the two gentlemen, on the stale of the weather, the prospects of tho approaching harvest, ntid such important staples of con versalion, the Major asked Hubert bow his wheat crop promised to yield. In reply, he was told that '.lie ypung farmer expected to make at least one humited bushels. The Major appeared to study foi a moment, then abitiptly proposed a game of :old sledge," or 'seven up,'-'- 1(10 slakes (o. bo his daughter fanny against the crop ci wtieat. j nis, 01 course, the young man indignantly refused, because he could bear the idea lhat the hand of l.er he loyed should be made the subject of a bet, or that be should win a wife by gambling for her, and, peihnns, be cause ho knew the "old man" was "hard lo beat," nnd that there was a strong probabili ty of loosing both wheat uuij wife. It waa not until the Major, with his usual obstinacy, bad sworn that unless he. won her, ha should neygf haye her, that ihf young man was forced reluctantly (o consent to play. The table was placed, and the players, (ook. tieir 6eata, with Miss Fanny between to watch the progress of the game. The cards were regularly shuttled nnd cut, nnd it fell to the Major's lot to deal. The first hand wns played, and Hubert made gjfl to his opponent's high, low game. Robert Ijeu dealt, the Major begged ; il wq fiivent a"d, the Major sgain made tbreo to his oppo nent's one. "Six to two," said Miss Fanny with a sigh. The Major ns he again dell the cards winked knowingly and said : :t am good for that wheat, Master Hob." ' ' 'fhe od man turned up a rnmp t was q spade.
